A Weibo tipster states the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will launch with an Adreno 830 GPU clocked at 935 MHz. The SoC's P-cores will have a peak clock of 4.2 GHz and the other six cores will max out at 2.6 GHz.

A Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 engineering sample was benchmarked recently, giving us our first look at Qualcomm's  upcoming flagship SoC. Given it was pre-production silicon, it was running at sub-optimal clocks. A well-known Weibo tipster nicknamed Undead has now revealed the final clock speeds of its performance/efficiency cores and GPU

For starters, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will launch with an Adreno 830 GPU clocked at 935 MHz. This is more or less identical to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3's Adreno 750 (~950 MHz). However, the Adreno 830 is slated to deliver Apple M2-levels of performance in a smartphone form factor, which is nothing short of impressive. 

On the CPU side, it has been well established that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4's performance cores will boost up to 4.2 GHz. There is still some debate around the other core cluster, with some stating they're efficiency cores, while others claim they're "medium" cores, like the Cortex-A720. Either way, the leaker says their max clock is set at 2.6 GHz. 

Well-known leaker Digital Chat Station revealed earlier Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 might score about ~10,000 points in Geekbench's multi-core test and ~2,700 in single-core. Undead states this will be possible only with a ~15 Watt power budget. This sits in line with an earlier leak that pegged the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4's all-core power draw at around 14.2 Watts.
